A stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s boundary-pushing novel, 'Orlando', is set to open at the Barbican after its premiere at the Schaubühne Berlin.

Woolf’s dazzling novel on gender fluidity is gleefully adapted, extending across centuries to the present day.

As Orlando travels between historical periods, countries and lovers, glancing knowingly at the audience, their journey is caught on camera, mixed with pre-recorded footage and projected – all with a wardrobe team making quick-fire changes in plain sight.

God's Own Country star Josh O’Connor and Jessie Buckley star in the National Theatre's production of the classic Shakespeare tragedy.

Directed by Simon Godwin, the pair will be joined by Fisayo Akinade as Mercutio in the production, which runs in the Olivier in August 2020.
